Fortnite: In-game food trucks could be the perfect replacements for vending machines

Fortnite players often find themselves in dire straights after a battle if they’re heavily damaged with no heals, so one fan thought of a way to order up some health using some features already in the game.

Epic Games included a few restaurant chains within their game that added to the game’s loose lore, but a new concept could put those brands to work to serve up some much needed grub for injured players.


In a post, Reddit user Natan33988 outlined his take on food trucks, making them a perfect location for players to heal up at a price.

Fortnite Suggestion: Food Trucks from r/FortNiteBR

The idea would simply take the Durr Burger’s trucks already found around the map, and open them up for business.


The mobile eatery would randomly spawn around the map, giving wandering players a rest stop to buy up heals and shields.

According to the poster the menu would consist of two items, the Durr Burger that gives 20 health points and a Durr Sluchy that dishes out 20 shield points, each costing 50 wood a pop.

The idea would open Durr Burger for business, sort of.

The idea was well received by the community, but some were concerned with the low cost of the valuable heals.


“They should cost maybe 150-200, because 50 materials is very little, and 20 shield/health is a lot if you can buy a lot,” one user said.

The idea is a rough concept of a feature that would fit really well into the game, as consumables are already rife throughout the battle royale using the concept to localize and monetize the items.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain

  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
